Chromebook Return

YMCA Afterschool Care Survey

The Findlay Family YMCA seeks feedback from parents of middle school-aged students on interest for “After Care Programs” for children grades 6-8.  Though it is not guaranteed at this time, the YMCA is gauging interest Van Buren families may have for this program.  The students would be transported from Van Buren after school to the YMCA and supervised until parent pickup.  They are asking that families complete this survey: https://www.survio.com/survey/d/D2W7C5D2Q3V7W7S2S

Daily Announcements

VBMS posts our daily announcements each morning by 8:00am.  Check them out here for information on activities and clubs!


The adoption of Schoology has allowed us to align to one platform for online components to our classes at Van Buren in grades K-12.  Parents should have received an email providing information on how to create parent accounts in Schoology.  Below are links to video tutorials and help guides:

Pandemic School Lunch Waiver - Extended through the end of the 2020-2021 school year

All Van Buren students are eligible to receive free school lunches (a regular lunch) as a result of the federal school lunch program waiver made possible through the CARES act through the end of this school year.

Using PaySchools for Lunches and School Fees

Van Buren Schools is now using PaySchools to accommodate online payments for our school lunches and fees.  If you used PayForIt in the past for lunches, you can login here to migrate your account to PaySchools.  If you never used PayForIt in the past, create a PaySchools account here.  Note: Lunches and fees can still be paid for by bringing in a check or cash.
